Financing for Physician Shadowing
Funding Your Shadowing Program
Atlantis is an investment in your career, and maybe more importantly, it’s an investment in yourself as a well-rounded and culturally competent professional.
To help make participation possible, we offer limited, need-based financial aid and competitive merit scholarships to accepted students. We review applications and process decisions during the month of March. A financial aid package can cover up to 50% of the program fee, and eligibility is determined through a separate application available to accepted students only.
Our team works with you to find a program that fits your budget and fundraising solutions that fit your schedule. With multiple payment plans to choose from, we are committed to working with you to determine the financial plan that makes the most sense for your future Atlantis program.
Flexible Payment Plan Options
1. Pay in Full
2. Monthly Payments
3. Two Installments
Raising the cost of a program can be daunting. We're here to help. From the fundraising guide to our own team's experience raising money for various endeavors, we can help guide you towards making a program a viable option for you.
A number of students have raised the full cost of their program between writing letters and using platforms such as GoFundMe to raise support from family and friends.Check out GoFundMe
Atlantis Merit Scholars
The Atlantis Merit Scholarship is extremely competitive. Less than 5% of our students receive a merit scholarship. Our scholarships are reserved for our highest achieving students and require a separate application and interview after acceptance and enrollment. Please note that enrollment consists of choosing a program and confirming your placement with a signed contract and non-refundable $900 deposit. To learn more about our merit scholarships, reach out to our Admissions Team today!
Our merit scholars are incredibly accomplished students, typically juniors or seniors, with at least a 3.5 GPA and a strong, compelling story. Contact Our Admissions Team for More Information.
For previously enrolled students now transferring to 2021 programs, please reference the Post Enrollment emails and "Q&A: Coronavirus and Program Alternatives."
Refunds & Program Credit
For students enrolling after September 21st, 2020, we have expanded our refunds policy. (In the past, Atlantis has guaranteed program credit, but not refunds.)
Our updated refund and credit policy is reason neutral, meaning that the same policies apply whether withdrawals or cancellations are related to COVID-19 or any other factor.
The $900 deposit is considered a separate, non-refundable payment, but it will also carry over as program credit.
